Rick Santorum argued that tonight's landslide win in the Missouri primary — which was largely overlooked by Mitt Romney, due to having no delegates at stake — was a better measure of a Republican candidate in the general election, due to the absence of a race in which a rival candidate was deluged with negative ads.
"Governor Romney's greatest attribute is, 'Well, I've got the most money and best organization,'" said Santorum. "Well, he is not gonna have the most money and best organization in the fall, is he? No, we're gonna have to have someone who has other attributes to commend himself to the people of America.
"Someone who can get up and make sharp contrasts with President Obama. Someone who can point to the failed record of this administration, and say that Barack Obama has to be replaced in the Oval Office."
